  6. 6. Students, therefore, need opportunities to take advantage of the communications and collaboration tools available in today’s wired classrooms to engage in projects and dialogue with their international peers. Just as students can deepen their knowledge when teamed with their peers in the classroom, students can both broaden their perspective and enrich their understanding of the world through relationships with their international counterparts. Making this connection will be vital to navigating the global marketplace. Partnership for 21st Century Skills http://goo.gl/WNBG6
